“A ‘Boke of the Garden’ is a necessity; otherwise, so kind is memory about disagreeables, one forgets one’s mistakes.”

Mabel Osgood Wright (1901) The Garden of a Commuter’s Wife

Welcome to UpNorthGardener.com! I moved to Northern Michigan in 2017, and started my first garden that year. I am continuing to grow flowers and vegetables here in Plant Hardiness Zone 4.

This blog serves two purposes:

1. to share photos and stories with those interested

2. to keep notes on record for my future reference

 Thanks for visiting!
